Stars of comic book world and London fetish clubs to speak about masks & hoods
Club Rub head honcho and fetish hood & mask expert 'Kim Rub' is just one of the many stars we have lined up for the Saturday seminars.
Kim will be speaking on the Pleasures of Hooded Clubbing, and serving tea and cake in the style of Alice in Wonderland. (One lump or two!)
"I'll be presenting my personal journey of my love of hoods, my experiences and insightful observations, armed with a large dressing-up-box from my private hood & mask collection.
I shall be inviting people to try them on and have a snap or two taken for their own enjoyment.
I'll also be answering any questions and showing, for the first time in public, my much prized collection of antique and vintage rubber hoods which were made from old car tyres and inner tubes." (Seen above. Photo by Maria Coletsis)
Also added to our exciting roster of guest speakers is British comic book writer, artist and masked hero expert, 'ILYA'.
Utilizing his 22 year comic book industry insider knowledge, Ilya will be speaking and drawing in his own unique style about the rise of the masked vigilante, their need for secrecy, the psychology behind the heroes who wear the masks and the transformations which occur.
ILYA, is best known as the creator of 'The End of the Century Club' and has worked on or for Dark Horse, Slab-O-Concrete, Crisis and Deadline.
